Maidenhead United Ladies were not able to build on their county cup win over Woodley United last week, as they went down to a 3-1 defeat at St Nicholas Ladies on Sunday.
The Magpies, who had thumped St Nicholas 5-2 on home soil before Christmas, conceded three times in the first half as Rhian Robbins (two) and Kirsten Rendall got their names on the scoresheet.
The Magpies, led by captain Tina Brett, had been in good form prior to the clash, but the deficit was too big to make up and neither side was able to find the net after the break.
Maidenhead last tasted defeat back in early November, when Southampton Saints Girls and Ladies beat them 3-1 at home. They came into the clash off the back of a gritty 2-1 win at Woodley in the semi-finals of the County Cup.
Next up for sixth placed Maidenhead is a trip to league leaders Southampton Women on Sunday (March 4).
The Maidenhead United Walking Football team bowed out of the FA People’s Cup on Saturday after only managing a 1-1 draw against Bracknell Town.
The team, part of the Magpies in the Community programme, needed a win from their final game of the qualifying competition but were held by Bracknell.
The group meet every Tuesday at the Braywick Astroturf from 1.30-2.30pm under the guidance of former Maidenhead United player Nevin Saroya.
New players aged 50 and over are welcome to join the club.
